A giant Tyrannosaurus rex more than 150m tall has been carved in a field of maize as part of the new developments being unveiled at the Skylark Garden Centre and Maize Maze near March, Cambridgeshire.

Children from Guyhirn Primary School, in Wisbech, were the first adventurers to explore the T-Rex maize maze and dig for fossils.

Development plans include a cafe and garden centre extension, new toilets and a new car park location.

Edward Gowler, from Skylark, said: “A giant T-Rex maze design is the perfect image to represent our big development plans.”

Opening on Saturday, July 14, those who conquer the maze can continue the fun with tractor rides with added water-gun fun, pig racing, go karts, den building, an obstacle course, zip wire, beach area and brand new castle with mega-slides.
